Te Mahanga

This annual clover demonstration site was established at Te Mahanga Station at Poukawa on 28th March 2012. The soils are Matapiro silt loam with an underlying hard pan which reduces drainage in winter. Annual rainfall is 750 mm. Clovers sown were Sub (Denmkark and Woogenellup), Balansa (Bolta), Arrowleaf (Arratas and Cefalu) and Persian (Turbo). The effects of broadleaf and grass weed spray’s and grazing management were tested across all these clovers. Further details and results to date are available in the Hub and Field Day notes.
